A well produced book, full of information and dozens of stunning photographs that clearly states that this is tennis, the Williams sisters way. The foreword offers inspiration and advice to would-be or beginning tennis players. The sisters explain that in their early years, tennis for them was 'a shopping cart full of worn-out old balls'. Their road to international success, leading to winning at Wimbledon, is clearly defined. Every stage of the game and the successful techniques involved are clearly set out so that the novice can make easy reference. The photographs are clear and the reader can copy the various moves and positions with ease. Boys and girls of various ethnic groups are favourably depicted, making this an inclusive reference book. The advice on what to wear, equipment, the basis rules on stretching and warming up are adequate and clear. The Match Tips from the Williams sisters include tips on having fun and 'going for it', essential to encourage the young. The 'useful information' on tennis organisations is also a valuable feature.
